“Well worth a membership”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We live about two hours away from the zoo, yet find a yearly membership to be a value for us. The zoo has great activities all year 'round and is always clean and fun for our family. During the spring, there are different tress and flowers blooming almost every weekend. During the summer, the wide walkways (streets) have plenty of shady trees and hills to keep things interesting. In late summer, they have a festival with area restaurants selling samples of their menus with entertainment/ bands throughout the zoo. In the winter, the pathways are cleared of snow and you get to see the animals in their indoor homes.
Beautiful way to spend the day any time of year.

“best in summer”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

this zoo has many, many types of animals and you can easily spend the whole afternoon. I don't love the food selection with the exception of the ice cream in the Wisconsin building. You can feed the goats or see a sea lion show and don't forget to ride the train...the line goes fast and kids love it. Check for animal feeding times I LOVE when they feed the penguins.

“I love our zoo”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We always get the yearly pass so we can go whenever we want. We have a spectacular zoo here in Milwaukee and it is yet another great place to spend a day.

“Best in zoos”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Beautiful, clean, easy to get around. Nice exhibits and animals seem well cared for. Would like to see the Big Cats indoor area bigger. Very nice and great family attraction.
